Isabel Foster Retrospective on Saturday December 14th at Upwey

Burrinja Gallery in Upwey

Isabel Foster: The Challenge of Colour

Explore delightfully bright, bold and bizarre textiles created by 92-year old artist Isabel Foster.
Isabel’s extensive body of work shows her lifetime’s devotion to needle and thread, colour and the ingenious use of the finest materials.
As a child born between two world wars, Isabel was raised in a time where thrift was given and home furnishings were handmade. This upbringing planted the seeds of resilience, independence and creativity, which have become the hallmarks of this remarkable textile artist.
Isabel’s passionate works highlight the ability to break with conventions and push her creative boundaries.

The exhibition will feature signature pieces from Isabel’s long career spanning 45 years.

Isabel is brilliant! Her rugs are a wonder to behold, from humble Proddy's to extraordinary crocheted, wild things. A must see.
